Born in Coleraine, Minnesota Ken Gernander was selected 96th overall by the Winnipeg Jets in 1987 after starring with Greenway High School. He then enjoyed four solid years at the University of Minnesota including 55 goals over his last two seasons. He spent most of his first pro season in 1991-92 with the AHL's Moncton Hawks.

Over the course of the next three years, Gernander continued to hone his skills in Moncton with a brief stint in the IHL with the Fort Wayne Komets before signing as a free-agent with the New York Rangers in the summer of 1994.

The former Golden Gopher went on to see most of his action with the club's AHL affiliate in Binghamton/Hartford while making his NHL debut during the 1995-96 season. The Fred T. Hunt Memorial Award winner in 1995-96, Gernander has gone on to solid AHL career and has continued to be a leader both on and off the ice for the Ranger organization.
